What did you do today?

I spent my afternoon at the Royal Ontario Museum today.  I looked at a lot of things, including items from all over Eurasia.  Favourites were this garment (and I couldn't find the info to go with it, so I don't know exactly where it's from):

... and this harness from Uzbekistan, inlaid with turquoise in silver.

Much time was also spent looking at the butterfly specimens.

And, I also got my first Etsy sale today!


  1. Wow, those pieces look great. I spend far too little time in museums. I should really get some culture!

    Congrats on your first sale! You could also try posting some items at my new vintage & handmade site called http://efreeme.com - there are no listing fees or commissions!

  2. I should go again soon - visiting before just reminded me of how big that museum is and how much there is to see.
